SOURCE: 2005 Nissan Maxima How do we change a brakelight

I believe you should pop the trunk and look where the light would be on the outside and pull the carpeting off.
well first unscrew the screws holding the carpet down then look in there.
pull out the headlight assembly and take out bulb and put new one in

SOURCE: how to change brake pads

This is actually a simple job if you have the right information. Definitely be prepared by spraying the caliper bolts and the rotor mounting bolts with some sort of penetrating oil.
Second. Loosen the mounting bolts (17mm), which may require a breaker bar. Loosen also the caliper two caliper bolts (15mm). After all 4 bolts are loosened, take them out.

Third. Now that the bolts have been taken out, the caliper may be seized to the rotor. Some light "banging" with a hammer is okay, as long as you aren't bending anything. Once the caliper is loose, it is safest to hang it with a zip tie or piece of rope, as it will still be connected to the brake line and you don't want it to break.

Fourth. Take hammer and and bang off the rotor. You really won't hurt anything by doing so. I used a small, hand held sledge and hit it while laying on my back from behind

Fifth- make sure that you remove the caliper pins, clean them with brake cleaner, and re-grease them before putting the pads back in

***Pay attention to the way that the brake pads come out, making sure to put the new ones in the same way

Sixth- Compressing the hydraulic cylinder on the caliper can be a tough, but I finally figured it out. YOU DO NOT NEED A SPECIAL TOOL TO DO THIS. I took a large C-clamp and put some pressure on the cylinder. Then, using vice grips, I lightly clamped onto the indentations in the cylinder (you will know what I mean when you see it). Make sure that you don't clamp down on the rubber gasket when you clamp down.

Turn clockwise and tighten the C-clamp as you turn. You do not have to do them simultaneously, but it is a bit quicker if you do. It might take a few minutes, it is doable- take your time.

Once you get the cylinder compressed, you are good to go. Put the new rotor on, set the new pads in their slots, and put the caliper back onto the rotor. You can do this.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Maxima SE tachometer clock

Its not a clock its just calculates the time it took to make trip. The display at the bottom of the tachometer area is a "TRIP COMPUTER". It shows OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE, DISTANCE TO EMPTY, AVERAGE FUEL COMSUMPTION, AVERAGE SPEED and JOURNEY TIME. Press the "TRIP" button on the steering wheel to change through the modes. Holding the "TRIP" button for more than one second will reset the mode.

Nissan Maxima has a new radiator, and new thermostat and is still overheating bad. It will go all the way up the H within 10 minutes of driving it.


One of the issues with changing radiators and/or thermostats id that you get air into the coolant system. Question: Has this just started after those parts were changed, or did you have the problem before. Some cars like BMW's are notorious for this issue. If air gets into the system then it certainly can cause this. On my work van was pulling my hair out and it was a very small leak at the radiator allowing air to enter. Have 35 years experience with cars and never thought that would happen.
